Dr Ashwaq Al Jaff

Dr Ashwaq Al Jaff is a member of the Council of Representatives in the Republic of Iraq. She is also a lecturer and Head of the Department of Pharmacy at the University of Suleimani.

Ashwaq would like to establish a culture of human rights in Iraq by setting up an Institute for Human Rights where students can graduate with a diploma in human rights.

It is Ashwaq’s aim to entrench the principles of social justice and human rights in Iraqi society through building international causes that are recognised in Iraq. She hopes to pass this idea through the House Bill and gain the support of the Ministry for Higher Education.
